Dear Pedalsport Member,
Welcome to the August 2016 Pedalsport CC newsletter. We are once again rounding up the action of the last month and looking ahead to what’s coming up in the next few weeks. As ever, keep an eye on our website (www.pedalsportclub.com) for all the latest news on our regular sessions – any cancellations and updates will be posted there and on our Facebook group.
We have two evenings of club “Crit-Cross” racing planned for the second half of the summer. Crit-Cross is basically Cyclo-Cross style racing (tight corners, changes of direction) on tarmac. We will mark out a course on the tarmac cycle circuit using cones and tapes. We will use the club’s electronic timing system and every event will include at least 2 races for every rider. Race duration will be in the region of 5-10 mins. We’ll be relying on a few volunteers to help us with the sign-on process and tidying up after the events – please help if you can.
There will be a session charge of £2.50 for all riders.
Thursday Club Crit Cross 25 August – open to all club members of all abilities. We’ll run races split into Under-14 and Over-14, with shorter under-10 races if there is a demand.
Monday Fun Crit Cross 5 September – aimed at our adult members only (16 and over) of all abilities. We’ll split you on the night according to gender and/or ability. We’ll also allow you time to practice the course. The aim being to give you a fun taste of racing without the pressures and numbers you’ll find in an open circuit or Cyclo-Cross race.
